Editorial Reviews

About the Author

J.D. Robb is the pseudonym for a number one New York Times bestselling author of more than 190 novels, including the futuristic suspense In Death series. There are more than 400 million copies of her books in print.


New York Times bestselling author Patricia Gaffney is a six-time Rita nominee for her historical romances, and winner of the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart award. She worked as a high school English teacher and a court reporter before pursuing a full-time career as a novelist. Ms. Gaffney lives in southern Pennsylvania with her husband.

More About the Author

Regency romance is not where I started as a writer. Writing began in earnest for me at age fourteen when I drafted a script for my favorite TV show. While my attempt never made it to the small screen, I eventually pursued writing as a career, first with contemporary romances for Silhouette and later with historicals set in the Regency period.

My life experience has shaped my conviction that life is best lived with joy, love and a generous heart. That is what at I most want to share with my readers. Family will always play a strong part in my books and novellas since, for me, family relationships are as fundamental as the love between a man and a woman

I had to force myself to keep reading, thinking the stories would have to get better, wouldn't they?

I think there was too much to this story to be made into a short?

I'm a huge fan of Robb's Eve Dallas series, so much so that I'm willing to pay full price for the novellas that she includes in anthologies with Blayney, Gaffney, et al., even though I don't much care for the others, whose stories are pretty standard "supernatural romance" stuff & lack Robb's wit, her ear for dialogue, & her ability to create plausible characters even in completely implausible circumstances (as in, female homicide detective married to world's richest & most handsome man). I give "Chaos in Death" only 3 stars for several reasons. There's not enough of the usual snappy conversations between Dallas & her trusty partner, Peabody. The guaranteed one-every-50-pages sex scene between Dallas & Roarke isn't up to Robb's usual hot standard. And (SPOILER ALERT) Robb's explanation of the weird science that creates the murderer makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
But what really ticked me off about the book is that it started to come apart in my hands at about p. 65. I've got 5-year-old Robb paperbacks that I bought used in merely "good" condition & they're in better shape than this thing. If Penguin is going to charge $7.99, the least they can do is make sure the pages don't fall out.

The In Death series is my absolute favorite. In fact, this is the first time I've ever liked every single book in a series by any author, but I *hate* these anthologies. Typical publisher gimmick (I used to work in publishing, so I know this is from the bag of tricks that every publisher has), and they *can* have value when, say, an unknown author's work is paired in an anthology with a better known author. I'm all for author exposure, but given that In Death-only novellas/anthologies themselves are usually published at some point, it bugs me when a publisher tries to get me to pay twice. Bad enough that the In Death books now come out first in hardbound (and again, I understand why from the publisher's point of view) and, before the Kindle, I'd have to wait 6 months for the paperback (I do not want a mix of soft- and hardbound copies of the In Death books, and as they used to be published in softbound, I want to keep my collection that way), but to fork over more money, in this economy, for stories I'm not interested in just to get the one that I AM interested in, as a consumer, it bothers me. I think it would be great if the publisher published 4-5 In Death novellas/anthologies every 6 months or so, or on some sort of schedule (as Roberts writes them), and we "completists" could then have JUST the In Death books all together on our bookshelves. As it stands now, for any In Death novella that come published with other authors' works, I scour yard sales and if I find any and the price is less than $2.00, then I'll scoop it up. Otherwise, I wait and hope it will eventually be published in an In Death-series-only bundle.

And BTW, what IS it with the hike in Kindle book prices?

First let me start by saying that the In Death books are one of my favorite series, and J D Robb one of my favorite aurthors.
That being said, I was very disappointed with this book. I found it rather dull and hard to get into. It was very predictable, but that's not what the main problem was for me. It just didn't flow like her usual work. I think there was too much to this story to be made into a short? I've really enjoyed her other short stories, and really let down by this one.
Not up to par with the rest of her work, by far.

Jessica

I loved the short story by J.D.Robb, but the others tended to be more romances and somewhat tedious. I would much prefer a collection of mystery short stories, as I no longer read romance novels.

I actually enjoyed this book. I had read a few reviews that people did not like the direction she took with this book. I actually did. It was a bit predictable and that was ok. I had a good idea who the bad guy was pretty early but the book itself was enjoyable. I love the people in these books and the way they come together and to me that's the most important part. Its different but in a good way. I cannot wait for the next one!!

Chaos in Death wast the story I was interesting in reading. Gotta love the variety that Robb comes up with for Eve and her team. The story reminded me of Hulk Hogan, a mild mannered scientist being transformed. And, it also reminded me of Jekyll and Hyde. What makes this story interesting is there is no lag in the story, it continues to move along not being bogged down by extra chapters. Eve catches a case of three dead former addicts all in the same rehab program. The facility they are all going to also does research into new methods for treating addictions. Witnesses describe the killer as being green, leaving the scene of the killings dancing and laughing. The picture of the killer is hard for anyone to take seriously. Yet, Eve continues to investigates and eventually identifies the killer and the reasons for them.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I only bought this book because I'm addicted to the In Death series by J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts). It's one of the annual anthologies that appear around Halloween to which she contributes a futuristic police novella with a supernatural touch. Most of them are pretty good, but this entry, Chaos in Death, is far less believable. I know it sounds weird to compare believability among ghosts, invisibility, futuristic settings and the like, but the premise of this story just doesn't work for me. The Jekyll-and-Hyde concept of the plot is fine, but the physical description goes too far overboard. Coleridge wrote that fiction requires "the willing suspension of disbelief", but there has to be some hook to cling to while suspending...and in Chaos in Death, there is no such hook. If you're a fan of the In Death series, I recommend borrowing this from the library, but not wasting money on it.
